Hey Mike,

Yep. But I will try updating the device driver and see if that works.

The machine was built by a blind dealer who has a good rep. I will contact him if I can't solve this. Thanks for the suggestions.

I just got a new computer and have set up my wireless card to the internet.

Yesterday, I noticed that I can't connect. When I look at the systray,
it shows my internet service with a 2 out of four bars. But when I to
connect, it says that it can't connect.

It sounds like the wireless adapter has gone out. Is there anything I
can do to restore this card? More disturbing to me is why did this happen?

Anyway, any suggestions are welcomed?

Hi Holly,

When you buy the l o c dots, how many are there in a
package.
Some years ago, I purchased a package of 6 from the cn I b
and they were almost a buck a piece.
Never again!
I like the very small size, but the price was insane.
These days, I have a tube fabric paint and get a sighted
friend to apply where necessary. I'll be long dead before I
use it up. No, it is not transparent, but you just need a
wee dot!

Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

James Bentley
 

I've already ask. Maintenance gave me permission to cover up the touch panel.

They will keep the manual and I will download a copy of the manual. So, figureing out what different presses on the panel shouldn't be too big of a problem if the dish washer needs maintenance.

Here in the past few years, it seems to me that when an appliance needs new parts, its cheaper to just replace the entire appliance.

BTW, I haven't received the new dish washer yet. I was told that it does have a touch panel But, Maybe the panel will not be completely flat. Some appliances have a minor raised or indented place for each selection. I wouldn't need to mark some thing like this because I can easily memorize which slightly raised or indented areas do.

If that dish washer can't be marked then I would ask your managment if you can buy your own dish washer if they are not willing to provide you one. The worst case would be to wash your dishes at the sink by hand. My apartment complex does not provide dish washers. You certainly stand up for your rites to have an accessable dish washer. If you have to then go over their heads.

We don't have accessable laundry machines they are card machines so good luck

It depends on what type of touch panel it is. I have a bread maker that has a glass panel. There are no membrane keys, it’s extremely difficult to mark as just touching the glass triggers the buttons. Needless to say it’s been sitting in the box for the last four years. Luckily I got it with air miles so wasn’t out any money.



If it’s a membrane touch pad I would suggest velcroe as it sticks well and is easy to feel.

Hi,



I have an over-the -stove microwave.

I had my sister mark 15 of the touch-panel items with those small dots. I don’t know what brand. They are about the size and shape of a split pea. You just peel them of the sheet and stick them on.

In 8 years, 2 have fallen off and that has been in the last month or so.

Guess what 2 fell off?

You got it, 1 and 2.

I these 15 dots probably cost about a buck.

I got them from the braille superstore here in Canada. I think they are similar to the ones sold by maxiaids.

They come in a little sheet of 40 and cost a few dollars.

Then, the Velcro would need to have print markings on it, so that sighted people could see what to push; otherwise, they'd just pull it off in order to see what they would need to push.

Hi,



I have an over-the -stove microwave.

I had my sister mark 15 of the touch-panel items with those small dots. I don’t know what brand. They are about the size and shape of a split pea. You just peel them of the sheet and stick them on.

In 8 years, 2 have fallen off and that has been in the last month or so.

Guess what 2 fell off?

You got it, 1 and 2.

I these 15 dots probably cost about a buck.

I got them from the braille superstore here in Canada. I think they are similar to the ones sold by maxiaids.

They come in a little sheet of 40 and cost a few dollars.

James, check to see that the Velcro is transparent; I doubt that it is. You would need transparent covering, whether dots or tape.

I did find velcros strips from Maxi Aids that are advertised to be good for marking items. I’ll probably go with those.

Any fabric store should sell Velcro. You can cut it to the size you need, peel the backing off and stick it on.

If that dish washer can't be marked then I would ask your managment if you can buy your own dish washer if they are not willing to provide you one. The worst case would be to wash your dishes at the sink by hand. My apartment complex does not provide dish washers. You certainly stand up for your rites to have an accessable dish washer. If you have to then go over their heads.

Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

Carolyn Arnold
 

One thing is that whatever we use to cover a display has to be transparent, in order for others to be able to use it. For some time, I lived in my apartment alone, but if I had an issue where Maintenance needed to check, I would not have been able to cover a screen. Therefore, I have transparent dots. Tape can be transparent too, but I doubt that Velcro can.

Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

James Bentley
 

I want to thank all who offered suggestions for marking my new dish washer. I have decided on using velcros strips which I will cut in to small sections. It looks like the velcros will stick longer than most of the glue on dots. The dish washer will be moist and warm and I will need to wipe the panel at times for finger prints.

Normally, it takes maintenance here where I live about 2 to 3 days to replace dish washers. The supply train problems here in the US have turned 3 days in to over one week. I do not like washing dishes by hand. Guess I have become a little spoilt.

I'll be glad when our world calms down and gets back a bit more to normal. But, will that even happen? Well, we all hope so.

Regards,

James B
